FACULTY OF ENGINEERINGGEOLOGICAL ENGINEERING

Geological Engineering requires integration of geological science and engineering principles and methods for the recognition, analysis and solution of various engineering problems which require professional and specialized geological investigations. Geological Engineering encompasses professional engineering application of geology to mineral resources (both metallic and non-metallic) exploration; identification and evaluation of problems associated with surface and underground construction works, site investigation; exploration of construction material sources; development and management of groundwater resources; earthquake hazard assessment; groundwater contamination and environmental impact assessment; and identification and remediation of natural hazards.

Field applications associated with the Departmental Undergraduate Courses are carried out in or out of Ankara City boundaries either as daily trips or as field camps within the semester.

GEOE 327 “Field Geological Mapping” course includes additional field training that is carried out in or out of Ankara City boundaries either as daily trips or as field camps following final exams of the Spring Semester.

The undergraduate program of the Geological Engineering Department is accredited by ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, USA).
